This exhibit consists of a collection of oil paintings by two artists, Paul Zegers and Andrew Duclos, ranging in size from small plein air studies showing how the process begins to larger studio paintings.
The art show highlights the value of the Northern California area around Redding as a wonderful destination for tourism and outdoor recreation. The title “Within Reach” suggests that all paintings in the show will be from scenic areas within a day trip of Redding. “We also hope to remind locals of the variety of beautiful local destinations available to them for healthy and relaxing recreation. We have traveled throughout the area within a day-trip driving distance to paint on location as well as take reference photos used in the studio to create larger works.” GPS locations are included in the tiles [and QR codes are provided] of the works so viewers can travel to the actual locations if they wish.”
The exhibit highlights not only the finished works but also the process of creating the artworks through the inclusion of several plein air studies as well as a demonstration painting from each artist with notes showing various stages in the development of an oil painting.

“We are aware that homelessness is a local political issue currently. We see that it is a complex, multifaceted problem wrestled with by many.
Not all members of our community have the same experience with homelessness. For example, medical personnel on the HOPE Van, family members of the mentally ill, business owners, workers at the Rescue Mission, police officers, etc. all have different perspectives and experiences with folks who are homeless. Some people have no experience with homelessness other than the panhandlers who sit on curbs that they see as they drive by. Thus, it is as though we are all looking at a different part of the proverbial ‘elephant’. It is our belief that if folks were aware of the whole ‘elephant’/ problem, and it’s many aspects, it would be easier for a community to address the problem of homelessness successfully. One of the intents of our show is to increase awareness of the complexities of homelessness.”
